    Anyone who enjoys Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, the Hi-Lo's, the 4 Freshmen and/ jazz vocal harmony/vocalese should check out Accent, an international acapella jazz vocal group (USA, GB, Canada, France & Sweden-all vox in English). There is a prog connection - the Swede who started the group online is the leader of Moon Safari pursuing his other musical passion.

    Let us know what you think once youíve given it a listen or two, if you donít mind. Iíve no idea where to start.
    I got an OOP copy of The Yardbird Suite that's supposed to be a pretty good sample across three labels. I love it. It took me a while to appreciate jazz recorded this far back because the recording quality is not what it became by the late 50s but I'm glad I am there.

    And yes, Hiroshi Suzuki’s album Cat is so good. My favorite tune is “Walk Tall”, but that whole disc is quite nice. Glad you’re enjoying that one too!
    Thankx Aith01 ... ;-).

It’s one of my favorites though. I’ve bought it three times: twice on CD and once on vinyl.
    No, I have not ... yet!; thanks for the reco!.

    Paul Bley doc--thanks for posting! Nice. Speaking of pianist, does anyone have any other favorites. I like Jarrett, Corea, Bill Evans. I'd be particularly interested in some avant garde pianist. One I found recently was Galina Ustvohskaya, Russian, probably more in the minimalist classical style.

    Paul Bley and Cecil Taylor are the most influential "avant garde" pianists. And before them it's Monk. I just picked up the ECM CD, Not Two Not One by Bley, Gary Peacock, and Paul Motian. I think it's fantastic, and the sonics are superb.

    Some other players you might want to try are Matthew Shipp, Craig Taborn, Marilyn Crispell, Joanne Brackeen, Michele Rosewoman.

    It looks/sounds like I will jump in with that special edition - I never picked it up as a new release, I shamefully admit, as it skipped out of my mind after the disappointment of When The World Was One.

    Triosence are a new discovery for me - they were recommended to me on the basis of my enjoyment of est. Their music is more song-based, more "traditionally" melodic; & the influences of Keith Jarrett & Abdullah Ibrahim are quite clear to my ears, from time to time. Overall, I'm really liking what I have heard so far.

    I bet they must be fuming at GoGo Penguin's world-wide success, given that Triosence existed about a decade before they did, and are still mostly unknown (at least to moi)
